Yes, think I'll have to buy a toy to drive myself.

Very nice, but it's gotta be as soft-top! 8-)

If it were a hard top I'd make you an offer!

Hey! I have the same issue with this noise. I have XC40 B3, bought in august 2022. Dealer said that this issue has been recognised by Volvo and they are working on a fix. The noise is occasionally very very loud and disturbing for me or other passengers. It's been months since that and I am now talking to my lawyers.
You can listen to my recording of the sound here: https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fo/0judrckz ... 5khc4&dl=0

The recorded sounds are on the mild spectrum, it can get much louder, but I have trouble recording it as it is seemingly happening at random.

Their response is attached. In it they distance themselves form any responsibility, even though the sound has been getting louder and louder and they have not fixed this issue in over a year. translated via google translate.

Explains why we who have had the 'B' series longer haven't had this as we've got the 8 speed TC, not the DSG.

It’s a classic example of new technological solution creating problems for early adopters. Volvo, like many other car manufacturers, didn’t put enough hours of testing and now irons out bugs based on car owner’s input.

I bet Bentley owners don't have to put up with these types of issues! :roll:

Yeah, I know they are "slightly" more expensive! :lol: But it's not acceptable in 40 grand plus cars either.
